Follow established processes for configuration and Release Management to ensure that all project artifacts are managed, integrated, and versioned, and monitored according to standards.

More Uses of the Release Management Toolkit:

  • Confirm your organization serves as liaison between technical and non technical teams, in internal organizations and vendor/subcontractor organizations, to ensure all project targets and requirements are met.
  • Support internal operations teams through regularly scheduled team meetings to determine appropriate process in handling changing needs.
  • Maintain a strategic view of your software engineering process even while executing on the minutiae of everyday development.
  • Orchestrate: conduct investigative analysis on prior and/or pending content to ensure a comprehensive takedown process in accordance with contract language.
  • Organize and facilitate project planning, daily stand up meetings, review, retrospectives, sprint and release planning, demos and other meetings.
  • Ensure you build; automated test procedures, database interfaces, Test cases Unit Testing, User Acceptance Testing, Performance testing, Release Management.
  • Raise internal awareness of customer impacting bugs and/or issues, and drive the appropriate prioritization for fixes and/or responses.
  • Secure that your operation provides coaching, direction and leadership support to team members in order to achieve partners, business and customer results.
  • Operate and streamline the build and release process, configuration management, code compilation and deploy releases to multiple environments.
  • Identify: in partnership with PMO and operations teams, drive and mature Release Management, scaled Agile, consistent metrics and efficient processes.
  • Establish that your group holds the team accountable to come to meetings prepared, and own action items or process improvement outcomes that result.
  • Be the go to person when there is a need to query data to understand defect status, program status, and other business systems.
  • Confirm your business identifies project management coordination process gaps or areas for improvement and recommends and implements solutions.
  • Confirm your organization coordinates release activities with other teams (internal and external), partnering with the Change Management group to ensure a smooth and trouble free roll out of releases.
  • Confirm your team complies; completes the development and deployment of system upgrades and maintenance while ensuring business requirements are effectively met.
  • Standardize: leverage change and Release Management process to ensure all platform updates and upgrades are thoroughly tested and signed off prior to go live.
  • Confirm your team leads the Release Management process and ensures that expectations with technical stakeholders are negotiated and communicated effectively.
  • Initiate: efficiently summarize and present complex ideas and/or data into a format that can be understood by all levels of your organization.
  • Take ownership of a problem and stay with it through to resolution often involves coordinating the actions of people in other teams to achieve the desired result.
  • Manage work with the Agile teams and Solution Architecture Team to determine the best approach ensure the overall software architecture supports the project Concept of Operations.
  • Manage technical operations costs and lead initiatives to identify and drive cost efficiency efforts across infrastructure, tech ops, production support etc.
  • Analyze ITSM activities of the platform and provide feedback loop to development teams on operational gaps or resiliency concerns.
  • Execute deployment plans to deploy software changes at times that minimize your organization impacts across a wide variety of platforms and technologies (Windows, databases).
  • Perform requirements gathering to problem solve for any issues arising in operations day to day activities and implement appropriate process to see issue through to resolution.
  • Manage development and deployment teams for scoping, prioritization, and scheduling of changes to pre production and production environments.
  • Drive: implement governance framework defining methods to manage, monitor, and measure consistently across the CDO, utilizing resources and techniques to influence, improve, and automate.
  • Be certain that your venture serves as facilitator between all teams when environment code changes need to occur due to Production issues, or issues found in higher environments occur.
  • Manage work with other Product Owners and the Product management to determine impacts and interdependencies with other teams, programs or value streams.
  • Be accountable for helping you increase the pace and quality of your development and Release Management through Agile methods and DevOps workflows.
  • Ensure you merge; lead modern engineering practices like Unit Test Driven Development, Acceptance Test Driven Development, and Continuous Integration.
